It’s fun having houseguests! YAY! What’s even better is having people who are easy to please. I puttered around for about an hour on Friday and got the place looking nice. They were still in Santa Barbara around 1:30, so I didn’t expect them until after I left for rehearsal. That is exactly how it panned out. I got home around 9:00 and there was a car with Illinois plates in front of my house! YAY!
DeAnn and her friend, Laurie, are such nice people. We talked for a few hours and then headed off for bed so we could go to the famous Grape Stomp at the Bernardo Winery for most of the day on Saturday. Since I don’t drink wine, I don’t know jack about wineries or wine, but I went along. I stomped grapes too. What an icky feeling! All slimy and gooey and slippery! But hey, it was fun. I certainly hope they don’t take what we stomped and turn it into wine.
We were all supposed to turn in a circle. Ha!
Since real wine makes me ill, I tried some sparkling stuff. It was good, but I settled for about three sips. I really don’t drink much. I was an anomaly at the winery. I tried to like it but I just can’t. I really can’t.
Laurie flew back to Chicago today. DeAnn leaves tomorrow morning. I headed off to my second job in La Jolla this morning so they could putter and get themselves going. The fog was intense. Very lovely.
Surreal when this happens
I have three days of super packed work at the museum and rehearsal for three nights in a row. Then, it’s off early Thursday morning to catch that plane for Canada. Amy just asked me if I want to go to a hockey game. Hell, yeah! I am up for anything that doesn’t require me to remove my clothing in public, dance in public, or hang upside down.
